Re: Electronic handbrake on - motor still works
Just checking that you've reset properly?
The manual over-ride in the boot disconnects a link inside the EPB module.
The reset should manually (from dashboard) drive the unit as far as it can to release the brakes and re-latch the link.
So it must be push the release button and pull the handle and hold to give the EPB chance to relatch.
I tried the manual reset (using a guide I found on here) and could hear the EPB motor working but the cables would not relatch.
I ended up taking the EPB motor off, it was screwed right up and I noticed a small bubble on the g8nd2 relay on the PCB (indicating overheating). Have ordered a new relay and rear discs and pads. Hoping to have all the parts here by this weekend.
